Stats for Teams Searching for Their First Cup

Team Years in the NHL Cup Final Appearances Closest They’ve Come
Vancouver Canucks 50 3 Game 7 Cup Final losses in both 2011 and 1994. No one in Vancouver will ever forget LaFayette’s post or the ensuing riots.
Buffalo Sabres 50 2 Game 6 in 1999. Losing in overtime, no thanks to Brett Hull’s foot in the crease.
San Jose Sharks 29 1 Game 6 in 2016. They’ve never been able to shed their label as chokers.
Nashville Predators 22 1 Game 6 in 2017. Nashville fans still rue the bad call on Sissons’ go-ahead goal.
Ottawa Senators 28 1 Game 5 in 2007. A heartbreaking series for that culminated in the infamous Emery-Phillips mixup. 
Vegas Golden Knights 3 1 Game 5 in 2018. Luca Sbisa hands the game to Lars Eller to end the Knights historic run.
Florida Panthers 27 1 Swept by Colorado in 1996, despite the year of the rat.
Arizona Coyotes 24 0 Lost in 5 games to the LA Kings in 2012. Dustin Brown isn’t admired by Glendale faithful.
Winnipeg Jets 26 (1979-1996, 2011-2018) 0 Defeated by the Golden Knights in 5 games in 2018. Canada’s best hope was no match for Ryan Reaves’ heroics.
Minnesota Wild 20 0 Swept in the 2003 Conference Finals. Despite a disappointing playoff history, they did end Patrick Roy’s career in spectacular fashion.
Columbus Blue Jackets 20 0 The Jackets have only won one playoff series in their history, but what a series it was, upsetting the top-seeded Lightning in 2019.
